    There was a pretty good of older military type weapons at the Murphy's Texarkana show. Of course, modern military stuff outweighs the old like at most shows. Murphy's though seems to attract a decent amount of dealers with older milsurp guns for sale. Their next show, I think, is in Benton Ar on the 27th and 28th of this month.

    I know for a fact there was a really nice Mosin Nagant 91/30 (Ishvesk manufacture) with turned down bolt, matching numbers (except for factory renumbered magazine floorplate), that sold for only $250.00 at the show in Texarkana.

    It may not be cheap but Jackson Armory had a great collection. They had, for example, Lugers on a velvet tray similar to expensive rings at a jewelers. And they are a Class III dealer so they have quite a range of products.

    I attended the show at the Will rogers Center in Ft. Worth last weekend, great turnout and lot of vendors. However, IMHO, the prices were asinine! I ain't buying nuthin from nobody till this pamic ends and prices revert to almost reasonable.

    As a MilSurp collector, I occasionally find some interesting items at gun shows but the vast majority of finds and deals are online. If you don't have a C&R (03 FFL) already then I would strongly recommend getting one. It's cheap ($30 for three years) and will allow you to have eligible firearms shipped straight to you!

    Now is the time to get rid of stuff purchased at asinine prices during the last panic (2012-2013). Anyone want a Polytech (Norinco M-1A) for a national match build?

    Went to a gun show in Conroe last week. Fewer tables than normal, but a very decent crowd. LOTS of people buying handguns - esp. cheap ones. And, of course, the same 8 tables with the same triple-priced "antique" guns that must make a 100 shows before someone buys one.
